The School’s eight level programme aims to produce graduates of the highest calibre who are capable of integrating effortlessly into The Australian Ballet and top professional dance companies in Australia and around the world.

The School’s After School and Full Time training takes place in Melbourne but we cater to students outside Melbourne via our Intrastate/Interstate/International Training Programme (ITP).

The School also has a Boarding Programme which allows students from outside Melbourne to join the Full Time programme and live in a safe and nurturing environment with their peers.

The School also offers Open Classes in Melbourne and around Australia which any student can join without the need to Audition.
